The Qingdao Maidao Residential Development Master Plan offers a rare opportunity to develop a portion of the city with unique characteristics stemming from its geographical setting and relationship to the sea. The plan incorporates the program for land use and development density, as well as frameworks for open space, community buildings, neighborhood centers and educational facilities. The plan responds to the need for units with South facing openings and ocean views, and optimizes opportunities to link to the adjacent University District and coastal/waterfront park.
